I'm trying to put a hurst shifter on a top loader but the reverse arm on the shifter hits the mount on the gear box. Any one know what to do?
Ditto You can interchange the housings as long as the shafts are the same lengths. Most have one of either these two lengths: 14" or 17" The 17's were used on mostly full size cars like the Galaxies. As for the trans mount, one mount fits both the vertical and horizontal bolt patterns in the tailshaft housings for the 14" housings. The one I have does, it also fits C-4's too.pushrod power said:swapping tail housing is very easy. just the five bolts, maybe a new gasket, and that's it. the shifter mounting block might be different. i seem to remember switching tail housings and using a different mounting block because i had the same problem that you are having. when i first got my toploader it had the bigblock tailshaft housing on it. if you can't find a tailshaft i saw this on ebay this morning, it's not mine. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7973356759&category=33733
